Thanksgiving Breakfast: Not Forgotten

Turkey, check.

Mashed potatoes, check.

Pumpkin pie, check.

Breakfast, wait, what?



The year’s biggest day of food is upon us and we are all checking and rechecking our grocery carts for butter, crispy onions, three pounds of Idaho potatoes and canned pumpkin pie filling *cough* I mean a fresh pumpkin.

Yet, Thanksgiving morning rolls around, and, without fail, someone’s slumber-heavy steps come dragging into the kitchen, and that same question that somehow shocks us year after year finds its way out of an exaggerated yawn, “so, what’s for breakfast?”

Quickly lashing open the fridge, taking note of every needed egg and the half-gallon of milk that already has you panicking over recipes to come, it hits you. After three grocery runs and the last minute plea for the 16-year-old to run to the drugstore for one more can of cream of mushroom soup…you still forgot about breakfast.

It seems crazy, right? On this day that has celebrity status for its endless lunch and dinner (linner? dunch?), how can anyone be thinking about breakfast?

We all do though, regardless if it is an intimate thanksgiving for two, or for piles of aunts, uncles, and cousins strolling down from the guest room. We get up, delight in the warmth of a fresh cup of coffee, inhale the scent of the turkey roasting in the oven and ponder …what is going to calm the rumbling of my stomach?

This year we are going to be prepared. This year we are not going to forget. This year we are going to have an answer to that jaw-dropping question, “what’s for breakfast?”
